Unlike in the past when Indians were able to get their visa on arrival in Nairobi or Mombasa, intending visitors will now have to apply for an e-Visa in advance, with processing days taking as much as a week. Upon vehement intervention from tourism stakeholders, a grace period has been extended but only for two months, during which time tourists and business travellers arriving at one of the two international airports can still get their visa on arrival, but effective September 1, 2015 this dual mode will be scrapped and only the e-Visa process will be available.
Travellers would be able to apply for entry visas via a dedicated portal at www.ecitizen.go.ke.
